    I backordered NameSports.com at DropCatch. Today I received their failure to catch message. This happens sometimes. So. As usual. I look up the whois, expecting to see SnapNames/NameJet capture the domain. WTF. It got captured by GODADDY. Yep you read that correctly. First time I've seen them beat DropCatch to a dropping domain. Shocking. Impressions welcome :)

    First of all, NameSports.com as a domain doesn't make much sense to me, in terms of commercial value or applications.May be it could work as a brand for a service that has to do with printing sport jerseys/tees etc.
    Secondly there might be a good chance they're allocating/prioritizing their resources towards catching domains that they believe will garner more attention/action(bids).

    I feel like SnapNames has beaten Dropcatch on more names than usual for the last few days.. Have you noticed this too @stub or was this name just a fluke?

    And I didn't order any on your service yesterday @davidc1 🤦‍♂️

    I wonder if they had some kind of bug or outage..

    GoDaddy has been working a lot on their backend lately, maybe their backordering has been boosted...

    Yep. But they've been working on their internal backend. I don't think that includes their dropcatching. Which appears to have 0 priority.

    Wow Dropcatch goes down for 1 day, and people get a taste of what they have been missing out for years. Sad but true, they will most likely be back up very quickly.
